With McElhinney out of position

Postby elaine95 » Tue Nov 06, 2018 11:51 am

OTTAWA — Injuries have hit the Ottawa Senators. Hard.In the wake of Thursday’s 7-4 loss to the Philadelphia Flyers [url=http://www.lionscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-kerryon-johnson-jersey]Authentic Kerryon Johnson Jersey[/url] , the Senators learned they will be without top scoring winger Ryan Dzingel (lower body), impressive rookie winger Alex Formenton (concussion) and minutes-eating defenseman Cody Ceci (upper body) for Saturday’s afternoon game at Canadian Tire Centre against the Los Angeles Kings.All are expected to return for an Oct. 20 meeting with the Montreal Canadiens.Article continues below ...“There are a lot of fallen soldiers around here, but that’s the way it goes,” winger Mikkel Boedker said Friday. “We’ve got to have a next-man-up mentality.”While the Senators (1-2-1) have dropped two in a row, they’ll be facing a Kings team (2-1-1) that spoiled the Montreal Canadiens home opener on Thursday.Goalie Jack Campbell, a first-round pick of the Dallas Stars in 2010 who has just 10 games of NHL experience, made 40 saves in the Kings’ 3-0 shutout of the Canadiens. Campbell has allowed four goals in three games, suggesting the Kings will be OK while star goalie Jonathan Quick is out “week-to-week” with a lower body injury.“Jack’s got ability, but he’s got a really good attitude and he’s got a great work ethic,” Kings coach John Stevens told LA Kings Insider. “He’s been all ears trying to get better. If you work that hard, you’re going to get better, and I think he’s really worked hard at his game to be ready for an opportunity like this.”Center Jeff Carter led the offense in Montreal with a goal and two assists, while center Adrian Kempe scored his first goal since Feb. 7.Kings defensemen Dion Phaneuf and center Nate Thompson will make their returns to Ottawa after being traded by the rebuilding Senators to Los Angeles last season.Phaneuf also had plenty of praise for Campbell.“He’s calm in there, mature,” Phaneuf said, per NHL.com. “I’m really happy for him because he works extremely hard. Things you might not see in practice … he really competes, he’s on every puck. For him to get a shutout, it’s well deserved. He won the hockey game for us.”While Campbell is expected to start in goal for the Kings, Craig Anderson will be tending the pipes at the other end. The 37-year old Anderson allowed six goals in his last outing and [url=http://www.houstontexansteamonline.com/deshaun-watson-jersey]Authentic Deshaun Watson Jersey[/url] , through three games, has a .895 save percentage and a 4.35 goals-against average — neither of which is acceptable.Senators coach Guy Boucher, however, blames the problems in Thursday’s loss to the odd man rushes his team gave up.“The minute we lose the puck, our reload has to be smarter, better, so we can avoid at least the rush goals that we’ve been giving,” said Boucher. “It wasn’t about the D-zone last game. It was more about the rush situation we didn’t sort out well. We didn’t have the right numbers the minute we lost the puck. If we improve that, we give ourselves a chance.”While the Senators recalled winger Nick Paul and defenseman Christian Jaros, Boucher would only confirm that defenseman Ben Harpur will be making his season debut. The Senators could go with an 11-forward, seven-defenseman alignment. RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Gabriel Landeskog is so hot right now even he can’t quite explain it.Landeskog scored twice to give him six goals in three games, Nathan MacKinnon added a goal and two assists and the Colorado Avalanche beat the Carolina Hurricanes 3-1 on Saturday.Landeskog, fresh off a hat trick against New Jersey, opened the scoring late in the first period and added another goal midway through the second. His seven goals through eight games this season are tied for third most in the NHL.“I don’t know, obviously a lot of luck,” said Landeskog, who has a point in four straight games. “But at the same time you’re getting in the scoring areas and skating and working hard and a lot of it is just kind of coincidence. You happen to be in the right place at the right time.”MacKinnon scored late in the third and assisted on both of Landeskog’s goals for the Avalanche. Philipp Grubauer stopped 42 shots.Micheal Ferland scored and Curtis McElhinney made 19 saves for the Hurricanes, who have lost three straight after a 4-0-1 start.Carolina outshot Colorado 43-22 but still came out on the losing end. The Hurricanes have outshot their opponents in all three games during their losing streak.“I think our game is there [url=http://www.houstontexansteamonline.com/deshaun-watson-jersey]http://www.houstontexansteamonline.com/deshaun-watson-jersey[/url] , it’s just a matter of getting a couple bounces here or there,” Hurricanes coach Rod Brind’Amour said. “You just don’t want the losses to bleed and make you feel like we’re not playing that well, when really in my opinion we’re playing pretty well. A bounce here or there, you’re talking about a whole different situation.”Landeskog provided a jolt at the end of a sluggish first period. With both teams seemingly out of their element with a 1 p.m. local start time, opportunities were few until Landeskog and MacKinnon hooked up with 3:21 left.After a rush down the ice Landeskog took a backhanded pass from MacKinnon at the left faceoff circle, and the Avalanche captain slipped the puck in between the near post and McElhinney’s blocker.“(Our line), we’ve been playing well,” MacKinnon said. “We had a decent first five or six games but not great, so I think the last two or three have been awesome. We’re controlling the play a lot more. We just got some chances and took so advantage.”Landeskog was the only player to score in the second. With Colorado on the power play after Andrei Svechnikov went off for slashing, Landeskog’s centering pass from the left circle deflected off Carolina forward Jordan Martinook’s leg and back onto Landeskog’s tape. With McElhinney out of position, Landeskog buried the redirected puck into the open left side of the net to double the Avalanche lead.MacKinnon added insurance with a wrist shot over McElhinney’s glove with 3:09 to go in the third. The Hurricanes avoided the shutout when Ferland slipped in a goal with 2:33 left.“We’re getting a lot of quality chances,” Brind’Amour said. “The difference for me is you give their grade A players an inch and it goes in the back of the net. We’re not quite there yet. We seem to need a few more chances to get those to go.”This was Grubauer’s second win in three starts with Colorado. He robbed Svechnikov point blank, stopped a tricky redirect from Teuvo Teravainen, swatted Ferland’s backhand attempt on a breakaway and stonewalled Martinook’s one-timer in front of the net, all in the first two periods.Grubauer’s best came late in the third when he gloved Justin Williams’ deflected slap shot from the left faceoff circle with 5:54 to go.“Without the way he played we wouldn’t have won this hockey game,” Landeskog said. “He was outstanding. Honestly, it was one of the better goalie performances I’ve seen in a long time.”NOTES: The Avalanche have scored a power-play goal in seven of eight games this season. … Colorado D Tyson Barrie had an assist to tie Sandis Ozolinsh for third place among franchise defenseman with 254 points. … Hurricanes F Sebastian Aho assisted on Ferland’s goal to extend his point streak to eight games to open the season. … Carolina C Clark Bishop made his NHL debut after being recalled from Charlotte (AHL). … Saturday was Avalanche C Colin Wilson’s 29th birthday..The Avalanche scratched D Mark Barberio and C Marko Dano. … The Hurricanes scratched F Phillip Di Giuseppe.UP NEXTAvalanche: Conclude four-game road trip at Philadelphia on Monday.Hurricanes: Visit Detroit on Monday before returning home for three-game homestand.
